New hard drive shows up in Device manager but not This PC or Disk Management

I got a new WD caviar blue and it doesn't show up in anything except Device manager. I can't format or make a partition for it because it doesn't show up in disk management. It also shows up in the BIOS.

    To be clear...
    It appears in BIOS and Device Manager?
    It does NOT show in Disk Management?
    And you have rebooted since you installed this drive?
  2. Ive been using my PC for a month until I noticed it wasnt showing up.

  3. So you installed this drive a month ago, and didn't notice until now that you can't access it?
